Due to its durable structure, uPVC is commonly used for doors, windows, and even plumbing. uPVC windows are also more secure than your standard single glazed unit. The locks of a uPVC window are built within the frame itself, making the locks extremely tough to break into. You also have the added benefit of a double-glazed window as opposed to a much weaker single pane.
